The Smooth Story
A wise man once said that ‘perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.’ *
With this in mind, allow us to introduce SMOOTH. Sophisticated, elegant and romantic, our finely twisted merino yarn has been luxuriously created using only the finest in NZ merino fibres. She’s a dream to knit with. Easy to handle and crisp in definition, SMOOTH is wonderful for both
beginners and experienced knitters.
Wanting to create something truly special with SMOOTH, we spent a lot of time in the development stages of her production. This brought us to the quite wonderful realisation that we had to take the milling process right back to basics to allow SMOOTH to shine like we knew she could. We opted to shun the industry standard of using harsh chemicals to process the yarns for machine washing and instead decided to use a much gentler, time-honoured milling technique. We lovingly handled SMOOTH’s fibres and combed out the loose and shorter ones, simultaneously straightening the strands and reducing piling. As firm believers in the idea that people and things are best left authentic, we couldn’t be happier with the end result.
Once SMOOTH embodied the outstanding quality and texture she’s named after, we had to find some equally lovely colours to dress her in. Turning to our environment (the breathtaking Wanaka landscape) for inspiration, we embraced the soft tonal shades of dawn to capture the romanticism in SMOOTH. Moving from the lighter tones of Mist, Frost and Blossom to the more demure, calming
Duck Egg, Warm Grey, Graphite and Peacock, the SMOOTH colour palette makes
us feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
We know it’s going to do the same for you. To experience it’s softness and smoothness between your fingers and on your needles, order your SMOOTH yarns here. We know you won’t regret it.
